Some players seem to have an inexhaustible supply of chessboard luck.
Like all players, they may get into trouble every now and then, but they somehow find a way to escape.
Among world champions, Lasker and Tal and Kasparov especially excelled at peering into the abyss but making sure it was their opponents who fell. This book aims to help ordinary players, who may have little time for studying chess, to make the most of their abilities.
Unlike most previous literature on chess psychology, this is no heavyweight theoretical treatise, but rather a practical guide in how to lure opponents into error - and thus create what is often called "luck".
